Mekong Delta 2days 1night with Mr: No refund Alex :The 2 days Mekong Delta Tour with our guide Alex was awesome! We've seen so many things in just two days. The rowing boat trip was a bit short but besides that everything was great. We had such great time, experienced real local daily life, saw so many places, learned so much about Vietnamese history, culture, mythology and had delicious food. Alex really knows what he's doing and how to be at the right places at the right time. If you get easily offended or annoyed by getting told a lot of jokes Alex is the wrong guide for you. Otherwise you will have a marvelous time!! Totally recommend doing the tour with Alex :)

It was a really interesting tour, seeing the floating markets was the most interesting activity for me. Our guide Ben told us many interesting stories about life and people in Vietnam and we could ask everything we wanted to know. Tasting all the fruits was amazing!

We booked a group tour. Everyone cancelled the tour but us so we ended up having a private tour:) Our tour guide Sang was awesome! The floating market is a must but all the other activities were remarkable.

It was incredibly versatile and we have experienced so much that it is difficult to reproduce everything. To be able to immerse yourself properly, 2 days are a must-have.

Ben is the best guide ever. I was impressed by his knowleadge, english and eargness.
